Best Twist Season 6 (Fast Forward) Decks, Legend Decks For The New Format In March 2024

Update: New season has just started with a new Twist format. Learn more about it below.

Update #2: A hotfix patch is rolling out right now, fixing the issue with legality of many Legacy cards in the format. (Source)

Update #3: There was a mistake in the schedule – it turns out that Galakrond’s Awakening will get a separate release while the format ends on Badlands (so no Whizbang’s Workshop). That makes sense to be honest since if they went all the way to Whizbang, it would be the same as Wild for the final day.

Twist has officially launched! A new mode first released into Beta back in June is now back in full swing. It’s the first major addition to Hearthstone since Mercenaries (which, looking back at it, was a mostly failed experiment). The idea behind Twist is that the format will rotate every couple of seasons (or even every season), changing the list of available expansions, possibly with some extra rules.

We’ve also learned that Caverns of Time – the new straight-to-Wild expansion – will be available in Twist for its first three seasons. It doesn’t mean that they are going to be the same (first and second are similar, but a bit different), just that all of them will include that set.

Current Twist Format – Fast Forward

Current Twist format is called “Fast Forward” and it’s a brand new format. It’s very simple, yet incredibly dynamic. The format starts as a “Classic” – with only the Legecay (old Basic + Classic) cards available. Technically it’s not the same as Classic, because it doesn’t include any card change reverts etc. but it’s the closest we’ll have for now. Then, each day a new set will be added, starting with Curse of Naxxramas on Day 2, and finishing things off with Whizbang’s Workshop on Day 31.

Because of how this format is structured, covering it will be nigh impossible. By the time someone posts a deck, I find it, post it myself, and you see it – the format is most likely already changed. The good news is that decks from the previous formats will always be playable in the next formats, but they will obviously be weaker without the inclusion of the new cards. Just like in Wild – it’s often possible to play decks from even a few expansions ago, but they are rarely optimized for the current meta.

Demon Hunter and Death Knight start as being not available, but they will become available at the time they were added to the game. So Demon Hunter with Ashes of Outlands on March 19, and Death Knight with March of the Lich King on March 27.

Mini-sets will be released on the same day as their expansions, starting with Darkmoon Races (Madness at the Darkmoon Faire’s miniset) on March 22.

Here’s a full schedule for this month’s Twist. Each day you get one new set AND can use cards from all the previous sets.

  • March 1 – Legacy (Basic + Classic)
  • March 2 – Curse of Naxxramas
  • March 3 – Goblins vs Gnomes
  • March 4 – Blackrock Mountain
  • March 5 – The Grand Tournament
  • March 6 – The League of Explorers

  • March 9 – Mean Streets of Gadgetzan
  • March 10 – Journey to Un’Goro
  • March 11 – Knights of the Frozen Throne
  • March 12 – Kobolds & Catacombs
  • March 13 – The Witchwood

Twist (Fast Forward) Deck Lists

I’ll save this space in case I end up adding any decks after all, but again, it will be really difficult task given the current format.

    This is a really fun idea for oldschool players. It is bugged already on day 1: it is not legacy but just the og basic cards with a pinch of cards that were introduced as hall of fame replacements such as brightwing.

      For the record, I am having a blast though (pun intended) with some spell damage basivc mage deck.

    It took me longer than I want to admit that this is the same thread for all seasons, and was very confused by some of the deck suggestions below. LOL

    This mode is fun if you want to play against Jade Rogue for 90%+ of your matches despite the new “seasons”

      I don’t come across Jade Rogue very often. The last two days have been very diverse between dude paladin, secret paladin, inner fire priest, freeze/burn mage, miracle rogue, jade rogue, jade druid, reno decks, lots of different stuff really. Sadly not many decks that give off “real” un’goro vibes, like elementals or quest decks though.

    Hey guys, i reached legend with a priest deck, but couldn’t upload it here because of the deck builder. I posted it on twitter tagging your profile there.

    I don’t like Wonders XL as much. I’m so glad that these formats only last a month. I can play another mode in the meantime.

    That warlock deck looks amazingly fun. Quick note: there are 2 Leeroy’s in the list above. One should be a Rag. 🙂

    Apparently Gadgetzan IS part of the format, but Sword Eater is from Darkmoon, and THAT set is not part of Twist Wonders

    Sword Eater doesn’t exist in my card pool anymore … I was able to build (and play) decks with him, but since yesterday, the card is red in existing deck lists and is not available in the Warrior card pool anymore.

    Moreover, some cards are shown weirdly in the collection.. Acolyte of Pain, for example, is shown 3 times: 2 normal (Core Set), 2 golden (Core Set) and the 2 golden copies I own, which are marked ‘banned’.

    Blizzard still a small indie company, it seems.

      I don’t know for the other cards, but for sword eater
      “Fixed a bug where Sword Eater was playable in Twist, even though it is not in one of the legal expansions for this season”.

    Thanks for the decks lists but i don’t know what’s wrong because all the decks code are failing to import into the game. HS doesnt detect the code as it should be usually inside your collection. Maybe because they rushed the Twist mode into the game and something is broken.

    I tested import of standard deck list and it’s working so it’s really only the Twis mode import who doesn’t work !

      I can import the Paladin and Hunter decks that do not include any of the brand-new cards from Caverns. I also cannot get the others to work.

      Thanks for the report, I sort of fixed it! They still import as Wild, but you can convert them to Twist with one button.

        Thanks ! Now i could import all the decks but some cant work even after the conversion into Twist because some cards are in red like for exemple in the war control : acolyte of pain or fiery axe.

        How is it possible this cards are banned in twits if the player made it legend with this list ?

          September 6, 2023 at 2:15 pm

          Sorry, I think deck codes might contain wrong version of the card. The cards on our website are prioritizing Core version and Core is not available in Twist.

          But it can be fixed by taking those cards out of the deck, searching for them and adding them back in.

          I’ll try to do something about deck codes but it’s hard with so many different formats and the fact that Twist will have different expansions every month :/

            You know what is more a shame from Blizzard ? I spent some golds on Caverns of Time packs and i got a lot of copy of cards i aleady have (example Jade Behemoth from Gadgetzan) so it mean they gave me new copy of cards that i already have but they replaced the old cards by by the new cards. The old cards completely diseappeared in my collection and i don’t get dust or any compensation for that tt’s a total scam !

    No explanation within Hearthstone what rules the Season 1 Twist format has?

    And why on earth is there no filter for Caverns of Time? That way, it’s superdifficult to craft some of the cards if you don’t want to ‘massbuy’ the set… best thing I found is to filter for missing cards in Twist…

    Very poorly executed imho.

    • Old Guardian
      September 4, 2023 at 8:06 am

      The in-game filter for Caverns of Time is at the top of the Wild expansions. You need to scroll down a bit from the Standard expansions. There have been some display bugs with Caverns reprints though, there are cases where you cannot see them – also in crafting view – if you own exactly one copy of the reprint and two copies of the original.

        Thanks for pointing that out – although I could swear I looked it up and the expansion button wasn’t there a few days ago …

        And it seems I’m too dumb to use the filters – After filtering for ‘Caverns’ ‘missing’ with checked boxes ‘Normal – Missing’ and ‘Premium – Owned’, lots of golden wild cards I own aren’t shown (all the Shaman Jade cards, for example).

        Ah well, I did it the other way round and checked which cards are played in Wild, then crafted some of those.
